Claim of injuries to vets caused by exposure to toxins back in the news

Back in 2010 I posted a few stories on the possible health hazards soldiers were getting exposed to in Iraq and Afghanistan as a result of the burning of hazardous and medical waste.  See here and here, for example.  Two years later, I reported on an $85 million verdict against a military contractor for negligently exposing soldiers to a cancer causing toxin.  See here.

The issue is now back in the news.  NPR has posted a story here, or you can listen to it below by pressing the play button.
